One Step to Teleportation

Nearly three years ago TechDirt wrote about breakthroughs in atomic entanglement that could lead to advancements in quantum computing and teleportation. It seems that much of that research has continued as two separate groups of researchers have now used entanglement to successfully teleport the quantum state of an atom. As the article points out, the fact that two separate research groups came up with similar results (using slightly different methods) is particularly promising. It is amusing, though, to note that just about every article discussing atomic teleportation feels the need to explain that this is nothing like Star Trek style teleportation.

This blog is my personal blog and while it does reflect my experiences in my professional life, this is just my thoughts. Most of the entries are technical though sometimes they can vary from the wacky to even political – however that is quite rare. Quite often, I have been asked what’s up with the “gibberish” and the funny title of the blog? Some people even going the extra step to say that, this is a virus that infected their system (ahem) well. [:D] It actually is quite simple, and if you have still not figured out then check out this link – whats in a name?
